I would have picked something else.
Hate it!
That is so old fashioned

[@11509,Keepitsimple] Me too. A couple we know just had their first child and that is what they named her.

I’m not fond of it :( [@78387,Stereoguy]

[@11509,Keepitsimple] me either. I feel bad for the little girl. 😢

So Jean would be her middle name?
Stereoguy · 56-60, M
[@415694,Allelse] Yes
sounds a little too close to MM for me.
Grateful4you · 61-69, M
[@887863,bourbon] I said the same. I adored MM. Poor woman it wasn't suicide she was in a good place and excited about decorating her new house.

I love the name Nora I think it’s cute together
Nora Jean = a bit different and certainly pleasing.
Peppa · 26-30, F

Its giving me hillbilly drag queen

That reminds me of Norma Jean Baker, a.k.a. Marilyn Monroe. But still, it sounds good.
[@1351,TeresaRudolph71] interesting that wikipedia lists both baker and mortensen... on the same page.

it's too late for rabbit holes like this to find me. arrgh.

[@887863,bourbon] Yes, I just noticed that too, when I googled her just now.

Me too, my brain needs some rest.

I love it. Wasn't that a tennis player in the 70s
Stereoguy · 56-60, M
[@780464,Lostpoet] Not sure to be honest.
Grateful4you · 61-69, M
For me a bit too close to "Norma Jean" who was Marylyn Monroe's real name. I adored her.
MellyMel22 · 36-40, F
[c=#BF0080][i]Not a name I’d use [/i][/c]
Stereoguy · 56-60, M
[@1980,MellyMel22] Me either.

I like it. Kind of old-fashioned and nostalgic. Has a pretty sound.

Probably NJ or Nojay for nickname.
curiosi · 56-60, F
The old fashioned names are making a come back. I like it.
Little dated.
Stereoguy · 56-60, M
[@770288,StarzAbove] Exactly!
rjc36 · 56-60, M
I like it.
GJOFJ3 · 61-69, M
It's beautiful
SW User
Not really great.
Stereoguy · 56-60, M
[@992373,Hazyshadeofwinter] I don't like it either.
It sounds too 1880's-1920's for my liking. Nora is fine but NOT Jean. That would actually be a cutting edge name now if paired with Renee.
